How it works
Terra Spa Microdermabrasion uses a highly controlled vacuum, and a medical grade diamond crystal tip to remove the dead, outermost layer of skin. This skin exfoliation process reveals the new, living skin cells that are soft, smooth and receptive to nutrients.
Microdermabrasion is commonly used to treat and diminish:
Fine Lines and Wrinkles
Sun Damaged Skin
- Acne Prone Skin
Blackheads and Whiteheads
Superficial Age Spots
Dry or Patchy Skin
The procedure is performed by using a hand piece that the Terra Spa esthetician passes over the skin.
This evenly removes the stratum corneum, the outermost layer of skin.
At the same time the underlying epidermis is also stimulated by the abrasion and the vacuum. This promotes new collagen which thickens the dermis and improves resistance to the effects of ageing.
Before and after
Our microdermabrasion procedure takes approximately thirty minutes, depending upon the skin condition, the area to be treated, and the desired outcome.
Many will notice improvements in the texture and appearance of their skin immediately after the first treatment.
The long-term benefits of multiple procedures can be remarkable.

Microdermabrasion vs. Chemical Peels
During both a chemical peel and a microdermabrasion what is happening is a removal of the superficial dead cells of the skin, usually the stratum corneum. Treatments may go deeper than this depending on how aggressive the provider is, however the goal is the same. The methods, however, differ.
How does microdermabrasion compare to a chemical peel?
No post molting or peeling of the skin.
No excessive redness or days of downtime.
No uneven results.
Microdermabrasion is painless.
You get immediate and consistent results with microdermabrasion.
How quickly can I put on makeup?
In most cases within a few minutes after the treatment. Many women find they use less makeup after microdermabrasion.
How will my face feel afterwards?
Immediately after completion you may feel a bit "wind-burned" for a short time.
Note: Results will vary. During your initial consultation, your esthetician will evaluate your: age, skin type, and skin condition. She will recommend a personalized treatment plan and homecare recommendations for maximum results.
